The Mi Querida Triqui Traca was released in September 2019 as an extension of the Mi Querida brand (marked with a golden ring on a blue background). Compared to the latter, the Triqui Traca on paper looks to be fuller in body due to the addition of a special Dominican Ligero leaf. In fact, Triqui Traca is Spanish for fireworks.
The line is made up of four sizes, all distinguished by numbers, including No. 552, a Robusto size. They are sold in 20-ct boxes.
The cigars are rolled in an opaque Maduro wrapper, with brown reflections. To the touch, it is silky with little noticeable veins. The weight suggests a generous and uniform filling. In fact, the draft is slightly tight. Excellent construction.

Mi Querida Triqui Traca No. 552: unlit, it reveals clear aromas of ripe fruit, and less marked notes of spices and earth are perceived as well.
Summing up, when a product is presented to the public for its strength, the risk is to go towards a rough smoke, with a strength dominating the flavors. On the other hand, this Mi Querida Triqui Traca No. 552 surprises a noteworthy flavor intensity, which manages to keep up with the strength from the first puff pedal to the metal. The first third is very interesting, with a sustained and unexpected spiciness. The cigar’s only flaw is the evolution that collapses at the end of the second third. A last third with more varied aromas would have made the smoke even more interesting. It is a good smoke as is, but not for everyone.
